This is Edward Storey's sixth collection in which he continues to draw on the life and landscape of the Fen-country and that vanishing world of farm-labourers and brickyard workers in which he grew up. But here he also explores other interests - art, the music of Beethoven and Schubert, and particularly the threats on several levels to the environment in today's world.
It is the distance which brings you close
as though the river over-flowed
and lapped its water at this house
which several counties separate
from the familiar boundaries.
